This is an optional club that will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays before school at 8 a.m. in the music room. No auditions! (Possible lottery depending on the size of interest). Rehearsals will begin on Tuesday, January 19th. The club will meet for 5 weeks and will have a small performance on February 23rd at 6 p.m. for friends and family to enjoy what we've learned! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!

The artists in first and second grade are working hard on their student choice animal paper mache projects. We are running low on the following items. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Newspapers, masking tape rolls used, any small plastic container ex: butter bowl, sour cream etc.

We are Learning...
We will continue to study nonfiction texts. We will be learning how to gather information from informational texts so that we can become experts on a topic. We will be comparing and contrasting different books on the same topic as we read.
We will be focusing on subtraction to 100 with and without regrouping.
We will continue our unit on nonfiction writing texts. Students will understand the structure of explanatory and informational texts. They will learn how to write so that they can teach others.
We will begin a new topic on states of matter. Students will be studying the properties of liquids and gases.
***During this study we will be using balloons to help with experiments. Please let me know if your child has a latex allergy so we can plan accordingly!***
Word study in 2nd grade includes spelling, phonics, and vocabulary development. We will be focusing on 13 new vocabulary words. Those words are: matter, solid, liquid , gas, property , mixture , solution , reaction, evaporation, matter, mass, condensation, and dissolve.
